On-Campus Notification

Campus community notifications related to safety and/or security issues on campus or in the surrounding community are done in two ways.

  • For low level or informative notifications, CalArts uses the campus-wide email sent to individuals assigned a CalArts email address. Staff, faculty, and students will receive an email describing the issue and appropriate actions to take.
  • In the case of an emergency, all staff/faculty/students that have signed up for and logged into the LiveSafe system will be sent a notification. In addition, staff, faculty, and students that have updated their contact information via Self-Service will receive a text message. The text will state the emergency and any actions to be taken.

Mass Emergency Notification

Campus Safety administers the Institute’s mass emergency notification system. Students, faculty, and staff can register to receive notifications of emergency events. These messages are only transmitted during emergencies and are an additional avenue of communication. The Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Facilities Development and Management, or designee, will make the decision of whether to issue a timely campus safety, crime warning, or emergency notification on a case-by-case basis considering the facts surrounding the incident, nature of the incident, continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.
